Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Cut the vegan protein into thin slices or small cubes.

Step 2

In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, honey or agave nectar, five spice powder, sesame oil, black pepper, and minced garlic.

Step 3

In a large pan or wok, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add the diced onion and green onions and sauté until they are fragrant and slightly softened.

Step 4

Add the vegan protein slices or cubes to the pan and pour the sauce mixture over them. Toss everything together until the protein is coated in the sauce and cook for about 5 minutes, until the protein is heated through and the sauce has thickened.

Step 5

Toast the bread slices until they are crispy and lightly golden.

Step 6

Assemble the sandwiches by placing a layer tomato, followed by 2 slices of NouMi’s Plant based Bak kwa on a slice of bread, then adding cucumber, cheese slice and any other desired fillings such as your vegan protein. Top with the other slice of toasted bread.

Step 7

Serve the sandwiches warm and enjoy!
